Grant giving:

How it works.

Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity is a grant giving organisation which distributes around £1.5 million a year to the hospital as well as to other children and young people’s community healthcare settings.

We support and complement the work of the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People, Edinburgh (The Sick Kids) as well as other children’s healthcare settings across Scotland.

We want every one of the 100,000 children who visit the hospital each year, and the many more being supported in local communities, to receive the very best of care.


The charity does not make direct awards to individual children or families.
